Where Fram sails
Fram offers specialty and exploration cruising around the Arctic Circle with its glaciers and icebergs, and around the Southern Fjords and Disko Bay on the west coast of Greenland.
Cruising on ms Fram combines a spirit of adventure and exploration with a destination rich in history, culture and stunning natural scenery. It's all experienced from comfortable, modern accommodations and public spaces.
One dining highlight on Fram is the addition to the menu of seasonal, locally sourced food. Fram has one main dining room onboard and the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. It's open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the cost of meals is included in the cruise fare. In addition to the dining room, there is also a 24-hour cafe with snacks and drinks available for an additional cost.
There is not a lot of organized entertainment onboard as the scenery has the power to inspire and engage all on its own. There are plenty of comfortable places to relax indoors and out, including cozy lounges. Because Hurtigruten's ships are working vessels providing transportation and services to the local communities along the route, these cruises offer passengers a chance to experience local culture in a unique and personal way.
